Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

iOS App of the Week It’s holiday time! But we’ve all heard horror stories about people coming back from holiday and getting hit with a huge bill for using their smartphone outside the UK.

So, when I went off to Portugal recently I was determined not to make any unnecessary calls or to use apps that might run up data roaming charges and that ruled out the standard Maps app on my Apple kit.

Yet I found a very good alternative in ForeverMap from Skobbler. This popular navigation app has been around for a while but was recently updated with an improved interface and options for finding local businesses and other points of interest.

The app itself costs £1.19 but then allows you to download maps for dozens of countries free of charge from the open-source OpenStreetMap project.

You can download maps before you go away and then use them offline when you’re travelling in order to avoid roaming charges. There’s a search function to help you find specific locations or to plot a route to your destination.

This latest version also has a new ‘Where To?’ menu option that allows you to specify a category, such as bars, restaurants or museums, and to locate relevant sites within a distance that you specify.
